      As far as I can tell, it is horrible multitabling on mansion. It often doesn't jump to the right table when an action needs to taken, you can't really see what's going on, etc, etc.

      Do people actually enjoy the layout, because I can't really understand why people would choose to play here.. unless it's for bonuses or something

      As long as your not playing too many tables you should be able to see whats going on at your tables. I tile the tables and is not a problem.

      I don't mind the layout at all. Bonus system is alright. Lots of things to spend your points on.

      Do you use the minimal table view (or whatever you call it)?

      Yeah all four tables are visible on screen when your tables are tiled. Sometimes I move a couple of the tables over a little bit and add on two more tables in the middle.

      I play FL so I play max 6 tables and I have no problem at all.
      And I use minitables. They are nicer and less confusing for me :) I don't like those chairs and stuff like that.

      I play four tables for BSS or FLSH and never have any problems once I got used to the layout.

      To be honest I did have problems when I first moved over from Stars. No table resizing? WTF is that? Why is everything on my screen green? Why if I use mini tables does everything get jammed down to the size of a peanut? Doesn't give me enough room for HUD? Anyways after a while you get used to it. I just wish there was a way to resize full size tables.

      I play 4 large size tables, the mini-tables are too crowded with elephant stats on them imo

      I have to click a lot to see whats happening but I guess Im used to it.

      Sites have nothing to do with bad beats, not only is this post in the wrong post but there is really no point posting it in this forum.

      I assume you're talking about the reply to the post that is just before you (which is off topic)

      I always played the max amount of tables (15 or 16 i think?), not mini size. never had any problems, and was on 13'' laptop with touchpad. Should work fine

      If you're playing with full size tables, do they pop up when it's your turn to speak? Because that seems to be the big problem for me. It's not clear when I need to act on a certain table. So I'm always getting times out. And thebeeping doesn't help...

      It works fine. You just have to be ready with alt-tab for if you go broke on a table, which happens alot because I played SSS, but you press alt tab, get back into the line of tables, no problem :)

      I know the problem you mean Wildbeans, the times when the beeping stops happening and then seems to take 100 hands before it starts beeping again, and when it doesnt beep the table doesnt jump to the front, the times that i've noticed this happening is when you play a table out of sequence, say if there are two tables with playable hands and number 1 jumps to the front but you decide to play table 2 cos you have an easier decision or a bigger hand then sometimes it seems to mess it up.

      I dont know how to make it start again, lol i've missed out on KK cos of this problem.

      you have to go back to the 1st table, play it... and then it will continue like it should. If you play stacked, don't have to worry about this, because can only see one table :D

      although downside, you can't do things like check the fold box preflop with obvious hands, so you need to be quicker. To each his own!
